Sophia came as a surprise from a local friend of Lena Ralston from Victorious White Shepherds. This pup is out of her beautiful Joy and juel's Return to Sanity, CGC, OFA Excellent Hips/Normal Elbows, DM Normal, Thyroid Normal, cardiac Normal, Full dentition, MDR1 Normal. Sophie is DM and MDR1 Normal by parentage. We proudly co-own this beautiful girl with Lena. Our goal is to train Sophia in obedience, Conformation, therapy service and Schutzhund. She will make a great addition to our Guarding Hearts Therapy Dog Program.


Sophia has a great temperament that is outgoing and playful, yet with a wisp of independence that is characteristic to confident dogs. She is very affectionate and loves to be with her people. This girl has a wonderful play and food drive and she is a natural retriever. We can't wait to see what this gorgeous pup will accomplish in the future.


Sophia has an excellent balanced structure, Very good pigment and excellent bone. She has a Beautiful large head and excellent top line, great front and rear assembly with Excellent movement. Sophia is our future White Star!
